in a class




 

Mark your calendars for the 2014 High School Journalism Institute. Sponsored by Indiana University's School of Journalism, the institute is designed for high school students who have accepted a position in high school media or for those interested in learning about journalism prior to their senior year.

Participants will examine the role of the media, analyze their own and other student publications, and develop the skills needed to produce quality publications. Faculty members from Indiana and around the country will guide study during this, the 68th consecutive journalism institute.
Students also will contribute material to HSJI.org, a website to showcase work and blog about events during the workshops. Participants also will take part in Lunch with a Pro sessions. Media professionals from all areas of journalism — broadcast, design, public relations, reporting and photography — will visit each session to have lunch with students and answer questions about work and careers.

Converged Newsrooms:

Operating as a converged newsroom, these workshops each contribute to the production of one online magazine. Experienced journalism advisers will guide students in brainstorming stories, devising newsgathering strategies, and assembling and producing their contributions to the magazine. Register in early 2014 for one of these workshops if you want to learn how to be a backpack journalist, practice online journalism, integrate social media and gain leadership experience through collaborating with other journalists.
